Had to get new tires for my car early in the morning, then had an eye appointment so I didn't have time to run outside before it got hot. Once my dilated pupils returned to their normal state, I went to the gym in the afternoon. I did a mile warm up, then 4x[1mile@9:41; .5mile@jog], then .85 mile cool down. The reason for the .85 mile cool down is the gym was getting more crowded and at about .6 miles of my cool down, I realized all the treadmills were taken up and I had been on it for almost an hour and a half (half an hour limit when people are waiting), so I shared.
I listened to Black Eyed Peas on my mp3 Player; I chose not to use the fancy little built in TV. I thought about stopping after my 3rd repeat thinking "that's probably good enough" but then that was followed by another thought: "you've done 3 of these, you can do one more!" So I stuck it out.
I brought along my new little friends for longer runs: Clif Shot Bloks in Strawberry. I had one at 3.5 miles, 5.4 miles, and 7.45 miles. I picked up another couple packs of them at the store - I thought I'd try Cran Razz (no caffeine) and Strawberry (no caffeine). I tried one Cran Razz before I left for the gym, and I'm not really a fan of that flavor. Good thing I had the other half of the Strawberry package from my Tuesday 9 mile run.
This morning I did an easy 2 mile run before we are out of town for the weekend again. I was supposed to run it slow at an 11:52 pace, but ran it at an 11:12 pace. I thought I consciously tried to slow down too. I wore my Wish Blue Cool Racerback and my White/Wish Blue Speed shorts from Lululemon (Item LW7526S).
